Kesher offers a choice of two days between Mondays and Thursdays. We coordinate transportation services from students' elementary and middle schools, so that children begin their afternoon with informal learning through free play and a snack before moving into age-appropriate learning experiences. Each day includes Shira, a community song and learning circle, and pick-up is at 5:45pm (no later than 6).
